Getting Ready and Gear Sorting!


Rob & I have been taking the time to sort through our climbing and cycling gear. We want to make sure we can travel as light as possible and still bring everything we need to safely complete this trip!

So far we have two bikes, each with panniers, and each with a trailer. I have toured before and have filled all my packs with only camping gear. I’ll now need to find room for a full rack of climbing gear. I will be bringing more photography equipment than in prior trips and hope to be completely self-sufficient. We should only ever need to stop for food.
